Maxwel Cornet and Nayef Aguerd both featured prominently in West Ham training today ahead of tomorrow night’s clash with Bournemouth.

The Hammers desperately need the three points against the Cherries, after we slipped down to 17th in the Premier League table this afternoon.

David Moyes’s side has undoubtedly shown drastic improvements recently, but the players still aren’t anywhere near their best levels just yet.

West Ham have been missing some key players of late. Nayef Aguerd has been out injured since pre-season with an ankle problem, but he has ramped up his recovery in recent weeks.

Meanwhile, Maxwel Cornet has been missing for three weeks with a calf injury.

It seems as though both players are closing in on a return to action though…

When Aguerd and Cornet are back, it will be hugely important for this Hammers side.

And both players featured prominently in training today. You can see the pictures by clicking here on WHUFC.com.

Cornet will provide real strength in depth in the wide attacking positions.

Meanwhile, Aguerd coming back into this team should completely change the way in which we play.

Aguerd is a truly elite centre-back and the fact that he’s left-footed will enable Kurt Zouma to move back to his preferred right centre-back position.

Thilo Kehrer can then play in the right-back position that he has made his own in recent weeks.

Aguerd’s ability to pass out from the back should enable us to become more of a possession-based side – just like David Moyes apparently wants us to be.

And his rapid pace will help us play further up the pitch as a team, without being as concerned about leaving space in behind.

His all-round ability has been really missed at the London Stadium this season.

On top of all that, Lucas Paqueta could be back as well.

Everything’s looking good. Now the onus is on the West Ham players to go out and win the game.
